Escaping Into the Present: Poetry as a Practice for Reseeing the World

The act of writing a poem can bring us more closely to the essence of the moment, can help us exist in immediacy. In this two-hour online playshop, both practical and playful, we’ll sharpen our observational skills to engage with the poetry that lives in everything—objects, locations, situations, conversations. We’ll practice meeting what Hopkins calls “thisness.” As Mary Oliver writes, “the world offers itself to your attention, over and over.” Let’s meet it together, pen in hand. All levels of experience welcome.

This program is a fundraiser for the FABULOUS online poetry zine, ONE ART.
